Dog Log

If your dog engages on a persistent basis the behavior associated with PICA and coprophagia, you will want to start a dog log so you can identify where it is occurring, when it is occurring and what else is going on around the dog.

A dog log allows you to record details that you wouldn’t normally remember. Recording these details will help you be more thorough in documenting where and when.

Writing down or typing in the details will help you become more aware of circumstances that might cause them so that you will be more proactive about keeping them from happening.

Through trial and error, the dog log will help you to see if and how the problem changes as you try to stop it.

We keep a health log for our dogs that is different depending on how often we post it.

For things like vet visits, tests performed, changes in diet, physical issues that might come up, we record.

If we are trying to fix a specific health issue, we might get more frequent. If not, we keep it high and general.

When we go to the vet for an annual checkup, general or high level helps. We can review this information with our vet.

For an issue like PICA, you will want to be very detailed.

We keep ours in the cloud because we can share it with family members so they can keep it up-to-date. The convenience of being able to use any device to add to it and the fact that everyone can use it at any time makes it a no-brainer.
